Maggie I. Burreson
Maggie Burreson is an attorney in the litigation practice of Jackson Walker’s Dallas office. Maggie was a Summer Associate with the Firm in 2017 and 2018. Since beginning as an Associate in 2019, Maggie has taken a substantial role in all phases of litigation, including handling all aspects of discovery, drafting federal and state motions, and appellate briefs. In the past year she briefed and argued a motion for summary judgment, which the court granted, resulting in a total dismissal of claims worth tens of millions of dollars against her client. As a second-year associate, Maggie has taken over 15 depositions. Maggie has worked extensively on cases involving First Amendment rights, including drafting anti-SLAPP motions and related appeals.
While at Washington University School of Law, Maggie was a member of the National Moot Court Team, where she won the national William B. Spong Tournament her second year, won the accolade of “Best Speaker” at the ABA Regional competition her third year, and competed in the ABA National competition her third year. Before law school, Maggie developed her interest in First Amendment law as an intern for the Baptist Joint Committee in Washington D.C., where she assisted in conducting research for amicus curiae briefs and tracked national and state legislation affecting religious freedom. While working as a summer associate at Jackson Walker, she co-authored a piece for the ABA on the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act.
When she’s not vigorously advocating on behalf of her clients, Maggie loves researching and trying new restaurants in the Dallas area, spending time with her husband, Jared Webber, and dog, Sasha, and planning her next trip to a new country.
